Today we’d like to introduce you to Adonis Lenzy.
Hi Adonis, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
With a background of full-time ministry for over twenty years, I simply have a passion to encourage, inspire and motivate people from all walks of life to reach their dreams and goals.
After serving for ten years as an Associate Pastor at a local church in Nashville, I wrote a book called Next that pushes people in practical ways to achieve their goals. This book soon opened up doors outside of the local Church and in 2017, I launched my speaking business called Next Step Solutions.
Over the next five years, I have had the privilege of partnering with some amazing clients in both the business and educational arenas. At the beginning of 2022, God started stirring in me the desire to Pastor again. A door of opportunity opened up and I recently became the Lead Pastor at Bridges Nashville Church in downtown Nashville.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Taking a risk and stepping out in faith to start something new is never easy. The journey is filled with ups and downs that seem to be stuck on the repeat cycle along the way.
There were times when I felt like giving up and throwing in the towel. I think one of my biggest struggles when starting my business was that I went from being in ministry and surrounded by people all the time, to working from my home office and being alone during the day.
Then add the Covid shutdown on top of that. However, I kept going and here I am today.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I’ve always felt like God intended for my voice to bring an impact in both the Church and secular arenas. Simply put, I am a communicator that enjoys speaking to people from all walks and stages of life, inspiring them to live the life they have imagined by going after their dreams and God-given destiny.
As a preacher, motivational speaker and TV show host, the consistent feedback from my audiences is that I really know how to connect with them in a way that brings change to their lives. My platforms for communicating consist of the following:
1. Lead Pastor of Bridges Nashville
2. TV Show host of my television program called Inspiring Moments with Adonis Lenzy
3. My podcast called Next Steps to Better Days
If we knew you growing up, how would we have described you?
Go figure; growing up, I was very shy and introverted. The thought of public speaking was overwhelming. Even today, I still consider myself an introvert.
